Moved 2K# behind the rear axle, disappointing results.
As some of you may have followed my situation on lightening the front axle weight on my gooseneck toter, the results are in. I don't have exact apples to apples weigh slips, but I can figure the math. To recap, I started with a front axle weight of 15500# on a truck rated for 13880. I moved the ball back 22" and that was good for removing about 750#. I then added about 3' behind the rear axle and moved the generator(800#) and the 60 gallon aux water tank(500# full), I'm guessing about 700-800# of structure. This last weigh slip was half fuel, loaded with everything to go racing(food, beer, etc), and full water. Although I did not have any water in the coach on the previous weighs, I felt the full aux tank would leverage some weight off the front. Moving stuff behind the rear axle only netted about 450# off the front end. My end weights are 14300 on steer, 19500 on drive, and 9600 on trailer(only one car currently). I expected about 13800-14000#. I'm guessing there was more weight balance between the front and rear supporting these items than I had expected. It is what it is and I'm going to run it. My front tires are rated for 15800, wheels for 14600. Just passing on my research.
